About Henryk

We started this blog on July 27, 2012, when our son, Henryk Otto Thiel was born with severe brain damage.  This is our story of his life.

Here is are two excerpts from his obituary:

“Henryk Otto Thiel, precious infant son of Michael and Emily Thiel, died at home with his family on Sunday January 6, 2013 at 2:54pm.  Henryk was 5 months and 10 days old and was born on July 27, 2012 in Minneapolis, MN.  Henryk died due to complications resulting from in utero brain damage.”

“Henryk was a sweet little boy with a delightfully content temperament.  He appreciated the warmth of a good blanket and was the perfect snuggle companion, always desiring to be held close.  He gifted all who held him with his perfectly featured little face, the soft skin of his cheeks, his long fingers, and warm breath.  He was incredibly tough and slow to register his complaints with a cute cry.  Caring for him was a privilege, honor and blessing.  In the course of his prenatal and postnatal life Henryk, Michael, Emily and Lily were enveloped with love and support from their family, friends, faith and medical communities.”
